Two personal assistants to celebrity cook Nigella Lawson were found not guilty on Friday of defrauding money from their boss and her ex-husband Charles Saatchi following a trial that has gripped Britain with tales of drug use and marital strife.

Sisters Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo were cleared of defrauding the couple of 685,000 pounds ($1.12 million), saying there was an understanding they could spend anything on credit cards if they kept quiet about Lawson's drug taking.
